While there are millions of people around the world who dream about one day being rich and famous, there are so many different downsides to stardom that most of these people are not aware of, which would surely make them change their minds. One of the biggest issues with being famous these days, is social media and the trolls who go on there simply to say mean things to you.
Modern Family has become one of the best shows on television today, making household names of the likes of Ariel Winter, Sarah Hyland and Sofia Vergara, which has led to these beautiful and talented women being targeted by the online trolls. Now, their co-star Eric Stonestreet has spoken out about cyberbullying, stating that he cannot understand why people actually feel the need to do it.
During a recent interview, Stonestreet spoke out to say, "It's the girls that get it the hardest, Ariel, on our show, and Sarah and Sofia. It's rough, and people are really super mean, and they're cowards on social media. I don't understand it. If you won't say it to my face, why would you say it on Twitter and Instagram?"
While there are more and more stars coming out to speak out against cyberbullying, the sad reality of the matter is that it is not going to change anything and could actually do more harm than good. These trolls do what they do for attention, so by highlighting it, we are inadvertently giving them exactly what they want. The best way to beat the cyberbullies is to try to ignore them, and they will soon get bored.
